Our family just got to celebrate a very special occasion - David's 49th Birthday. What made this so very special was it came about very suddenly when David's employment "just happened" to send him to Tulsa for a job. Now, we know this was a God Deal and Blessing to allow us to celebrate his birthday together for the first time in years & also it "just happened" to be Father's Day week-end so a double blessing.

David has just arrived and is home
David & Mickey planning their golf game TOGETHER and in person, rather than long distance between San Francisco and Coweta, Aric busy on his own computer game on his lap-top.
Brother Marc has just arrived after work and is overseeing this golf game.
That evening it was all 7 of us (David, Marc, Aric, Jacque, Benney, Mickey, Susan) going out to dinner at David's choice. El Chico for a Mexican meal.
I had given David his choice of what he wanted for his Birthday Meal and he selected, without hesitation and in a moments time!! , Beef Strogonoff & German Chocolate cake.
We celebrated the joint Birthday & Father's Day celebration on Saturday. Added to Davids request for dinner was fresh green beans with new potato, big tossed salad, garlic bread and choice of beverage.
The home-made German Chocolate cake and his goofy wrapped gift.
David said, "I know this red bow probably came from 2 Christmas's ago!" He was right!!
Blowing out the candles.
Along with the "serious" birthday card Mom picked out Dad bought him a silly Cat card.
David has always loved cats and currently has 3 of them.
Making sure the dress shirt we bought him fits.
A fancy cologne from Jacque.
Notice the FAMOUS golf game on the TV in the back ground.
Mickey with his new Father's Day shirt from Marc, along with new bedroom loafers from Marc & Aric, new cologne from Jacque, Golf points from David.
Jacque FINALLY get in on this golf thing, with Benny watching from the sidelines.
It was Jacque's first time but she, as always, caught on real quick.
Our 3 grown, adult (???) children goofing off, as usual and having a great time.
Look at Mickey's concerned look - no matter how old they get DAD worries!!!
Our little, srinkling, but great family.
Jacque, Marc, Mickey, Susan, Aric, David.
(missing - Suzette in heaven, Jessica at work in Oklahoma City & Oksana in Indiana)
It was a GREAT Birthday/Father's Day celebration and 3 days together.
